Reliable Information and Helpful Notifications 4/5
This app has really become my go-to source for Metro information. It is reliable in the time of trains and buses 9 times out of 10 and every morning they send helpful notifications that can really influence how you plan your day.
By Kimberly Ann Hopf
I use this whenever we travel to D.C., a few times a year. It has helped us immensely! One night we were out late in Arlington having a Anniversary dinner at a cool Russian Restaurant. We realized that the metro was closing down and we had 9 minutes to jump into the last train or be at the mercy of a late night uber!
Love this app! 5/5
This app helped me so much on my first trip to DC! I was used to navigating the subway in New York, but was unfamiliar with DC. This app helped me navigate the city metro with ease!
Worst app 1/5
I depend on this app to get me to work in the morning and it's a complete failure wether the times are complete off or if there's a bus on the route that isn't monitored. Highly recommend not using this app no more
Very good ☺️☺️ 4/5
It's a good app
Great app, tell the truth 5/5
This app is great. It was buggy when it first released but the author has done nothing but improve it.
Like it 4/5
Not precise but useful
"Favorites" Feature Doesn't Work 2/5
I have saved my bus stations under the "favorites" tab numerous times only to have the stations deleted. Now it's not even letting me save my stations to "favorites" at all. Very frustrating!
Really helped out 5/5
First time to DC and a fellow tourist told us about the app. This app really helped navigate the metro.
It's okay 3/5
By Princess Peoples
I don't find it as easy to use as the old one and you can't map a trip you have to go online for that so I'm a little turned off but all in all I still love having an app
Rarely accurate 1/5
Does not reflect real time. Always misses lusting the bus that is due to arrive and listed the one after on the real time tab. So you think no bus is art I g when it actually is. Most times real time is incorrect.
Works Fine for Me 5/5
By Joes tavern shack
App is well designed and as accurate as the station times. Been using it for 3 years now and never had any issues.
Of the many times I've used this app, it's safe to say that it has been 99.9% accurate.
FIX THE APP AND THE SYSTEM 2/5
Do not download!!! Just like metro's train service, this app is unreliable. Bus and train times are incorrect. Mostly bus tho. Missed multiple busses relying on this app.
Sometimes the Real Times Aren't Available 4/5
By Liv And Let Liv
I've pulled up my bus route on several occasions to find that there is no real time available and I would have to rely on the scheduled timetable, which is never exactly accurate. Nevertheless, it is an overall helpful tool.
Dunn Loring 3/5
Good app but long after Dunn Loring bus bay improvements still no 2A at Dunn Loring in the app.
Mostly accurate 4/5
Some routes do not show and there are busses that are not tracked by the app (they show up without them having been tracked on the app) but overall very useful. Use it daily.
New to Metro 5/5
I recently started to take the Metro to work and I find the app to be very helpful in learning my way around the system!
Very helpful app... 5/5
Use it all the time. It makes my commute much easier.
Needs fixing for afternoon schedules 2/5
By gir rox
This app is only useful in the morning. After 1:30, it's wildly inaccurate. It should have real-time bus updates rather than estimates based on the schedule.
Attacked on Orange Line 1/5
I was stunned when something hit the back of my head. I looked around and found that the only other passengers left on the front car were three young black boys. ( I am a 73 man with a heart condition and mobility issues that require me to use a cane, so I guess I was considered "fair game ") After this was repeated a couple times, I moved up to where I could be behind the plexiglass and seated where I could keep them in view. They kept taunting me and I didn't know what to expect next. At the next stop I tried to get the attention of the engineer by tapping at his door but he just ignored me. When we stopped at Deanwood, I again tried to get the engineer's attention, but he ignored me until the boys departed the train and then refused to notify anyone in the station to try to apprehend them. I continued on to New Carrollton and tried to lodge a complaint but the person on duty there had no interest. What is there to do? Must I carry weapons to defend myself on the Metro system?
Helpful & Reliable 4/5
Is pretty much all I have to say!
The train I take from Halethorpe to Union is consistently late. Makes no sense. App works well though.
Texas tourist loves this app 5/5
I'm never been on a bus or metro before but with this app I was able to navigate Washington DC and Virginia and get to everyplace I needed to go in a timely manner every bus driver every train driver every person that I've been countered and then pleasant and I highly recommend this app
When it works it's great... but that occurs sporadically 2/5
The app is simple, easy to use, and can be very helpful. However, my experience with it has been terribly inconsistent. It does seem, and I could be wrong, that the updates for trains functions better within D.C. than it does once you hit Virginia. I live near Van Dorn and during single tracking - when trains came every 25ish minutes- we were provided with zero updates for weeks and had to wish for the best during our commutes. In theory that problem should be subsiding now that we aren't single tracking, but it is still inconsistent and often just doesn't show trains coming. Not sure if that is the apps fault or the stations in this area, either way communication between the two needs to improve.
By Lady Sky Tate
App works very well for predicting when next bust or train is coming!
Most of the times it's ok 3/5
The real time feature provides accurate information 75% of the time. I've often missed the bus because of it, and other times it says it's coming much later when in reality it's a few minutes. When I see a more than usual wait, I can make an informed decision to whether to wait or take Uber by looking at the planned schedule for the day. Needs improvements but It's still better than nothing.
THE Standard App for the D.C. Metro System 5/5
Regular functional updates, good developer feedback, stable build and performance! Keep up the good work!
We can't really trust the data 2/5
Does not list train times or delays 1/5
The app is incapable of listing train times or delays and is entirely useless except for the map. It always comes up with an error message that it is not receiving data from WMATA. I've been trying to use it for 4 weeks now and have never NOT gotten that error.
SO helpful. 5/5
Honestly this is more accurate than the actual times listed in the metro.
Good app for Metro!!!
Great app! 5/5
A friend of mine suggested this app one evening when I was trying to get home and I've been using it ever since! It gives real time updates on the trains and buses. It even gives updates to any issues with the metro system (there are ALWAYS issues).
This is a good addition to the Washington, D.C. area daily commuter's life!!
What is Going On? 3/5
Your "real time" is so in error when the last bus is 6:52 pm and u r saying the bus will be there in 20mins. Are u have a hard time connecting to WMATA? This is nerve wrecking for the past week, get it together. Otherwise it's OK but I need a back up App. Since Xmas your App is behaving wacked plus you schedule listings are really wrong, make the correction. I got your App so that I would not have to carry Metro's bus schedules with me.
Mostly Good!!! 3/5
Three and a half stars... I like what it should do. The timing could be more accurate in regard to arrival times of buses but, for me, it's not too bad. Updates should increase this app usefulness. I recommend it to riders.
Happy with App on Vacay 5/5
New version tracks you always 2/5
They changed this to track you always, even when app isn't open or being used. Why this is necessary, I have no idea, but say hello to additional battery drain. "Only when using app". That should be the default. Instead it isn't even an option.
Good ap 4/5
Shows everything it need to.
It's a guessing game with the 96! App not reliable for this route.
Remove stupid game app commercials- really annoying and cheapens the overall experience. Otherwise I use app everyday!
Great app 4/5
I gave this app 4 stars because it's not always accurate.
Extremely useful 5/5
Have caught many a train that I would've missed otherwise without this app.
Useful Tool For Getting Around 5/5
With a mobile phone, this app will help you take full advantage of Metro's substantial transportation network in near-real-time. If you miss a bus, you can find an alternative route that will help you make up lost time.
Pretty solid 4/5
By Dolores Day
I use the app daily and most of the time the predictions are within 3-5 minutes accuracy. I have my favorites chosen, but I do wish the interface for searching buses and metro lines were more smooth. Would be nice to get push alerts for when bus lines are down/delayed, and not just metro.
Slow to load 3/5
This app is usually accurate but also slow to load, which is frustrating when you have a short window of service at metro stops.
Very reliable 4/5
Are use it quite a lot because I use Metro every weekday. It's reliable.
Very useful apps 4/5
By Pretty dimple
its Great ride on train and buses all the accurate on time No problems 🚌!!
Works great for me 4/5
I use it daily and find the arrival times to be close to exact. I always build in a cushion of 2-3 minutes with each arrival as I've found that sometimes the buses will come early. All in all, works great for my daily commute.
My #1 Go-By Commuter App 4/5
I've tried many DMV (DC; MD; VA) commuter apps, but the DC Metro and Bus app is by far the best! It is about 95% accurate in providing realtime Metro bus and rail schedules. The only improvement for this app that I would suggest is to improve the upload time of the realtime bus schedules (it occasionally locks-up), and to test and correct the functionality of the customized alerts feature (it often does not work).
